Very sad. An original that sold only beer it made when it first opened. The council needs to step up and allow the place to be redeveloped or it will remain an eyesore.

It is possible the chemicals were in an alley way in 1988 and did not then pose a threat to the public. Or not.

I am confused the report stated:

“But on Dec. 20, it was discovered that two additional areas — where the restaurant's main sewer line runs — also need to be excavated, Jemison said he was told by his landlord, M & J Land and Equipment Leasing Company. Work had to begin immediately and could take up to nine months to complete.”

Where was the research done? Who did it? And when was there any indication of this problem?

The general public has been polluted whenever the patrons of the restaurant was sitting there.

Since when does just putting a sign up waive the owners of the building from being a threat to public safety since 1988?
